  • Planning a Celebration- it’s time to plan a celebration event of your choice. This could be a birthday party, an Eid celebration, an Easter hunt or anything else you wish to plan. You have £150 to spend and 25 guests will be attending. What will the money be spent on? Plan the celebration considering the location of the event, how you will decorate the venue, what your guests will eat and drink and how you will entertain your guests. Detail the timings of the event and any timings for preparation.
  • Time to Design- Can you imagine your perfect celebration outfit? What would it look like? What would it be made from? How comfortable would it need to be? Design a costume for a celebration of your choice. Think about the patterns you would like to incorporate on your design and the cultural traditions.
  • Birthdays around the World- Birthdays are celebrated differently in different countries. Write an information report detailing how birthdays are celebrated in the following countries: China, England, Spain, Italy and Mexico. Which country would you like to celebrate your birthday in based on your findings? Why?
  • What’s the same and what is different? - Select a holiday/festival of your choice and research how different countries around the world celebrate this event. You could compare whether it is celebrated at the same time, the outfits people wear, the food eaten etc. Make a video, poster or report of the things they have discovered.
  • British Celebrations- In Great Britain, Valentine’s Day, St Patrick’s Day and Bonfire Night are just some of the celebrations that take place. Choose one celebration day and research how the celebration came to be. Using the information you have found, plot the events on a timeline and include dates, details and pictures/sketches. Now create a poster advertising the celebration day. This could be done on a computer programme of your choice or on paper.
